It's almost certain to not be the spark plugs. If the check engine light is on, that means you have a failure in your emissions control system, which can sometimes be related to the transmission, which is what it sounds like you are having immediate trouble with. You will benefit from the help of a good diagnostic technician, as it sounds like it could be a significant or complex problem.
